Re: Ask Amy...

Well, to us, it sounds extreme, but these people ARE out there. I remember selling our house a couple of years back. A realtor was showing it to a couple in their 40s. Another woman, a friend of the wife's, was with them. I was showing them a room when suddenly I heard this loud squealing: "oooowwoo...

Re: Another Meme Thread

I remember well. Back in the 50s. We drove the neighbors to distraction tearing all over the neighborhood playing "army." It was a big deal to go down to the dimestore and stock up on ammo, er, caps.

Re: Nobody but Barack Obama

What kind of president (or ex-president) goes to a shirthole country like Brazil and makes public speeches running down his own country? Just disgusting.

Re: 2019 Firearms Related Bills That Made it to Governor Abbott

Hmmm.... As I understand it, it doesn't matter whether there's a sign or not; if you receive verbal or written notice, you have to leave, period. Still, can an LEO walk up and ask if you're carrying a weapon, based solely on noticing a slight bulge under your shirt? Seems like that would be illegal ...

Terrorist movie

Sometimes we visualize certain situations and try to devise ways we would deal with them in real life, as a concealed carrier. One of those imaginary scenarios is a sudden terrorist attack. I just recently watched a movie (we live 2 blocks from a theater) that made it strikingly real. The terrorist ...

Re: South Africa: Violent farm murders

Yep. I don't mean this as a racist comment, but once the natives run off the white landowners (who brought the country into the 20th century), SA is doomed to decay, just like what they did to other African countries - Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Sudan, Nigeria, Congo, Somalia, etc. I've had several very cl...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

While shrieks of alarm at $40,000 Beverly Hills shopping orgies blare throughout the media, rest assured that if the lawsuit reveals information that completely exonerates LaPierre of any wrongdoing, you won't hear a peep about it.

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

To accuse Charles of thug tactics like you are shows you are not fully aware of the work that man has done for gun rights. In the last ten years he has achieved more for advancing second amendment issues than many people will achieve in the same field over a lifetime. Of course. But I think what he...

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

Of course the liberal media is pouncing on all of this. They smell blood. But to the undiscerning public eye, it does all look suspicious.

Re: "Nobody has ever stopped a mass-shooter..."

Honestly, I think we're sort of digging in the semantic woodwork here. IMHO, it would come down to the difference between "prevent" and "stop." The examples use "stop" to mean "prevent," but those are two different concepts. "Stop" means to stop something that's already moving. So a shooter is killi...

Re: Property taxes

The real evil is the agricultural exemption. I pay more property tax on my little plot in a suburban neighborhood than many pay for their hundreds of acres that produce little/nothing. But those folks who own vast tracts of land have bought enough legislative influence that the ag exemption will ne...
